Woke up one morning with a deep hunger pang after dreaming about gorging on those luscious deep brown Hokkien noodles. After being away for 4 months, am now feeling a wee bit homesick and longing for the comforts of family, friends, glorious food and natural heat from the sun!
And so, here I am surviving a COLD day at home (max temp at 5°) while drawing up my Top 10 Food Cravings (in no particular order)
#1 – Hokkien Mee laden with crispy lard and partnered with hot sambal belacan
#2 – Sup Kambing, heavy on the spices and plenty of tender meat pieces
#3 – Prawn mee & Pork noodles at O&S Restaurant, PJ
#4 – Tong sui stall @ weekly Subang pasar malam
#5 – White Coffee with Kaya & Butter toasts in Ipoh town
#6 – Savouring Banana Leaf Rice with fingers
#7 – Freshly prepared Chapati and Thosai over hot steaming cup of rich teh tarik
#8 – Char Kuey Teow using duck egg in Penang
#9 – Bak Kut Teh with oily rice and plenty of ribs
#10 – Cheap variety of Seafood at Bukit Tambun and Kota Kinabalu
Will be looking forward to returning home to enjoy all these food, unless my dear friends can bring over freeze-dried versions in the next few months (hint hint!). Until then, it will be cold sandwiches for lunch and quick pasta meals for dinners.
